The Accelerator Physics Group at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL), and at Duke University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position. The TUNL is a Department of Energy Center of Excellence in Nuclear Physics located at Duke University campus. The accelerator physics group is responsible for the operation and continued development of several electron accelerators and accelerator based light sources at TUNL, including a 1.2 GeV storage ring, a state-of-the-art storage ring free-electron laser (FEL), and a world-class nearly monochromatic, polarized Compton gamma-ray source, the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS). The successful candidate is expected to contribute significantly to the lab's accelerator and light source research and development program, in particular, the further development and upgrade of the accelerators and FEL to enable high-energy and high-flux operation of the Compton gamma-ray source. The candidate is also expected to contribute to the development of next-generation accelerator based light sources.

We are looking for candidates who can make creative and significant contributions to our program. The successful candidate should have strong hands-on skills and substantial experimental experience with the electron storage ring, free-electron laser, or other accelerator systems. A PhD degree in accelerator/beam physics, or a related field is required. The position is for two years, with the initial appointment to start as early as January 2020. This position is renewable for a third year based on mutual agreement and continued funding. Applicants should prepare a cover letter, a current CV and list of publications, a research statement of less than three pages describing past accomplishments and research goals, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent. Applications should be submitted to: https://academicjobsonline.org/15034 The application site is open until the position is filled. For questions, please contact Prof. Ying Wu at wu@phy.duke.edu.

Applications received by November 16, 2019 will be guaranteed full consideration.
